According to reports, the Bihar government has requested teachers in state government institutions to attend school. On Saturday, the district authorities issued directives in this respect. Teachers and other staff members have been warned to be prepared despite the fact that students are not being called to school owing to the coronavirus illness (Covid-19) epidemic.
State government officials stated the decision was made after complaints from several schools about a lack of teachers. Many citizens in rural areas, as well as school principals, have raised the issue. The government directive threatened consequences against instructors who failed to show up for school.
The attendance of teachers is essential for administrative work and to account for the funding supplied by the Centre. The principals have been asked to submit a report on teacher attendance to the district administration.
When Covid-19 struck India last year, schools were forced to close across the country. When the caseload in states dwindled, these institutions slowly reopened after being closed for over a year. The Centre gave state governments the authority to decide whether or not to reopen schools based on local conditions.
The Bihar government began reopening schools in March, but restrictions were reinstated as a second wave of the pandemic resulted in an increase in daily Covid-19 cases. Bihar education minister Vijay Kumar Chaudhary has announced that schools and colleges will resume next month, according to news sources.
Covid-19 guidelines have been issued by the state government for all educational institutions that aim to begin classes in July. The district authorities have been directed to ensure that schools adhere to adequate social distancing and facial masking guidelines.
The Bihar government has already completed and announced the results of Class 10 and Class 12 exams. On March 26, the results of both tests were released.
